Overview

Although Matisse Salinger is one of the most famous sculptors in the world, she has become a lonely, middle aged lady who hasn't left her house in years and speaks only to her longtime housekeeper, Aura Johnson, and her domineering mother and agent, Victoria Salinger. Without companionship, she turns her affection to food and does nothing but sculpt, sleep, watch TV and eat, eat, eat. Her world is shaken by the arrival of Alex Tyler, a handsome young man whom she hires as a model. Mattie and the young man fall in love and begin a beautiful May December romance until Mattie finds that she has been set up and the young model is not who he says he is. Fat Chance is a hilariously funny and sexy romantic comedy from the author of Cookin' with Gus and The Lucky O'Learys.
